  • 1

    Cook the rice according to package instructions. Set aside.

  • 2

    Stir together the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.

  • 3

    Cut the tofu into cubes and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Place a second plate on top, then press firmly. Change the paper towels, wait a minute, then press again, removing as much water as possible.

  • 4

    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or in a wok over medium. When the oil is shiny, add the tofu in a single layer. Let the tofu cook a few minutes until golden on one side, then flip to pan fry on all sides until golden. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  • 5

    Return the pan to the heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Let heat for 30 seconds, then add the asparagus and broccoli, along with 1/4 cup of the stir fry sauce (be careful-the sauce may splatter a bit on the heat). Cook until the veggies are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add additional 1/4-cup sauce, reserved tofu, tomatoes, and green onions. Cook 2 additional minutes. Stir in the mint, then serve over rice, garnished with additional green onions and sauce as desired.
